Easter Egg Craft

2010_03_10
I found some cute little Easter egg picks at Michaels and thought they would be perfect for topiaries.  I gathered up the supplies I had from my previous topiary making endeavor and starting crafting...

I already had spray painted the pots and distressed the edges with sandpaper.  I cut the floral foam to fit in the pots and then cut out pieces of moss for the top.

I replaced the ribbon bows with raffia.
